I've posted a solution for wx - twisted integration. Based on Itamars
suggestions of two threads.
It's very easy to use.
To call a twisted method from wx thread just do:
netCall(someTwistedThing, myParam, kword1=x, kword2=1)
It returns a deferred, that will be calledback and erredback safely in
the wx thread.
Same for calling gui stuff from a twisted thread.
guiCall(someGuiThing, (p1, p2))
or even easier create an interlayer object:
from twisted.protocols.basic import LineReceiver
def send(self, someData):
send = makeNetSafe(send)
In this example an instance of GuiNet can be used safely by the gui
thread, it can send data, just like if it was a normal twisted call; it
will return a deferred. "makeNetSafe" means make this net call safe to
be called from the gui.
There is also a "makeGuiSafe" call, but I haven't tested it.
You can still use the wrapper object in your test cases if you dont have
a gui. If no TwistedThread is instansiated netCall and makeNetSafe just
